Your HCG shots will be more effective if they are coupled with a routine that includes regular exercise, and a healthy diet which includes eating small meals for breakfast, dinner, lunch and some light snacks. But because of our busy lifestyles, we sometimes opt for quick, yet unhealthy fixes to satiate our hunger until it’s time for the next meal.
And if you are taking HCG shots to aid in your weight loss, skipping your breakfast is never a good thing. Dubbed as the most important meal of the day, your breakfast help fuels your body with energy that you will need to keep your body well stimulated and on the go.
Furthermore, having breakfast also prevents you from overeating because it will be easier for you to control portion sizes because your breakfast was able to keep you from being famished. But if you are still packing on the pounds, despite making sure to have breakfast before starting your day, your breakfast might have some loopholes that prevents you from achieving your ideal weight, such as:
Indulging on baked goods
Muffins and pastries seem to be perfect for breakfast, especially for those who are constantly on the go. And if you work in an office, there is a high chance that someone will bring a box of baked treats. While they are tasty and a great treat for our grumbling stomach, these baked treats are usually full of fat and sugar. These packaged treats may be convenient and easy, especially if you are running late for your meeting, but these baked goods will do nothing to improve your health or help you meet your weight loss goals.
Chugging on preserved OJ
Freshly squeezed orange juice is packed with vitamins that is good for your immunity, which is why it is a favorite of many. On the other hand, store bought fruit juice contains unbelievable amounts of sugar and carbs. Packed and canned fruit juices contain a variety of artificial flavors, preservatives and sweeteners that have high sugar content. The better option to boxed fruit juices is to drink juice that came from freshly squeezed fruits, or just have a glass of water to wash down your meal.
Eating carb heavy meals
If you think your favorite pancakes and waffles are healthy and tasty breakfast choices, think again. Popular breakfast meals such as waffles and pancakes contain sugar and, preservatives and additives that artificial sweeteners like syrup contain. These food can cause a spike in your blood sugar levels, followed by a crash in your energy.
But if you really want a heavy breakfast, a smarter option is to opt for whole grain toast or a bowl of whole grain cereals (oatmeal works as well), and combine them with lean meat, low fat yoghurt or egg white omelet. These healthy options are rich in fiber, which are effective in boosting your digestion by improving your body’s metabolism.
Adding too much to your coffee
A cup of joe is important for many people in order to start their day. The good news is, coffee is linked to lowering the risk for type 2 diabetes, reducing the risk for different cancers, and protection against Parkinson’s disease. But what makes drinking coffee in the morning counterproductive to our weight loss goals are additives such as sugar, whipped cream and flavored syrups that easily transform into unhealthy fat. To satisfy your daily caffeine fix, opt for freshly brewed black coffee, with very little (almost none) sugar.
Diving right into the buffet
Buffets are popular nowadays, especially in hotels and restaurants. But with it comes the freedom to indulge into an endless stream of food, making it easy for extra calories to sneak in. If having a breakfast buffet is inevitable, remember to limit yourself to one trip and to be mindful of the portion sizes of grains, lean meat, egg whites, fresh fruits and veggies that you add to your plate.
Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but utmost consideration should be placed when deciding what to have. Your HCG shots will be more effective when you decrease your sugar intake. Indulge instead on whole grains and fresh fruit juice. Opt for simpler meals, and avoid adding artificial sweeteners and dairy to your meal.
The choices you make for your breakfast can go a long way towards setting your energy for the rest of the day. Not only will your healthy choices be very beneficial for your health and energy, it will also keep your metabolism at its peak, ensuring that your body is doing its job in burning fats. At the same time, a healthy breakfast is will be a lot helpful for your body in storing plenty of energy to help you accomplish your daily tasks.
